Baby Bats

Safe Handling

Bats have small sharp teeth that can pierce skin very easily. Avoid direct contact, use thick gloves and blankets to contain. Wash hands throughly and all materials used to contain the animal should be washed and bleached or disposed of.


Bat pups that have fallen from roosts are often in poor condition and should be examined by an Authorized Wildlife Custodian before trying to reunite with mom. Follow our Wildlife Capture Guide and contact an Authorized Wildlife Custodian equipped to accept bats.
